Document Management

Multiview Financials includes standard document imaging functionality to scan documents such as invoices or work orders.

In conjunction with our third-party partner, loris technologies, Multiview can provide an even more sophisticated document management system. This system takes all of your records (accounting-related and/or production systems data) indexes them, assigns security, and safely archives them in one cohesive electronic database, on the media of your choice (network drives, optical disks, etc).

Reviews of Multiview

Michelle says...

It is an excellent piece of software. It has everything that we need and very up to date.

The good: The software we were using was very dated and this is very current. It is extremely user friendly.

The bad: What was missing from this, was a HR/Payroll product that was as good. We had to go with a different company for that piece. It would have been better if we could have it all in one software.

Sandra from Crosspoint Human Services says...

Multiview is a very flexible accounting system. It includes Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Asset management, Purchase order, Inventory Management, Budgeting, General Ledger and Viewpoint Reporting. Data can be uploaded to any application above from an excel spreadsheet and data can be downloaded to excel from any application as well. Has many user defined fields to meet your companies unique needs. Very adaptable.

The good: Sales staff very attentive. Quote and Contract covered all of our wants and needs. Best of all, we met with no surprises during implementation. Project Manager was EXECELLENT. With her guidance we converted data from our old accounting system and setup Multiview in 3 months! One of the best conversions I have ever experienced. Even after go live our experience with there support team is excellent. Thank you so much for suggesting Multiview to us!!!

The bad: Multiview does not have an integrated payroll solution. We chose Paylocity to service our payroll and Multiview worked with them to set up an interface.
